Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Wednesday, February 14, 1973 Soviet Union doesn't fool around when it comes to death penalty MOSCOW (AP) - Five drunken youths kill a policeman; a farmer embezzles the collective farm's income; a counterfeiter churns out rubles ... in the eyes of Soviet law they're equally dangerous and candidates for the firing squad. While the Canadian Parliament debates the capital punishment issue and the U.S. Supreme Court ponders a challenge to its abolition of the death penalty, Soviet courts relentlessly administer "the highest form of punishment." Russians know better than to ask why. When it comes to executions, the Soviet Union today ranks No. 1 among industrialized nations. Most Western countries either have done away with the death sentence entirely or reserve it for extreme crimes, such as the slaying of a policeman. Here the courts can stand a person before a firing squad even for endangering a policeman's life. In little more than two years since September, 1970, at least 24 Soviet citizens were reported shot for crimes ranging from profiteering to rape. In addition, at least 34 were hunted down by special secret police squads and executed as Second World War collaborators or nationalist partisans. But most Russians don't complain. They remember the past. Just 10 years ago, state-controlled newspapers were replete with execution reports. During the two-year periood 1961-63, more than 500 citizens were sentenced and shot for economic crimes alone. "If Lenin was the father of this country," one Russian remarked cynically, "then death was its mother." About five million are estimated to have died in the civil war after the Bolshevik Resolution in 1917, 20 million in Stalin's forced collectivization of agriculture and the 1930 pur- Contaminated U.S. lettuce said no health hazard OTTAWA (CP) - Federal health officials say U.S. shipments of lettuce, contaminated by a pesticide were sold in Canada during January but the small amounts of contamination would not constitute a health hazard. In a statement health authorities said they were notified Jan. 24 by U.S. health officials of possible contamination with Independent Order of Foresters INSTALLATION BANQUET and DANCE Sat., Feb. 24 - 6:30 p.m. SCANDINAVIAN HALL Music by "THE RAYMOND CANADIANS" For ticket reservations call 327-9204, 327-6141 or 328-5282 - Ticket cutoff Feb. 18 Members and Invited Guests "low levels" of the pesticide. On Monday David Archer, president of the Ontario Federation of Labor, said in Toronto shipments of lettuce from Arizona treated with the in-secticid Monitor 4 had entered Canada. He said the insecticide had been barred in California and at least 8,000 cases of contaminated lettuce had been destroyed in San Francisco. The Ottawa officials said when they were notified, a method for testing for the pesticide was not available. However, because of assurances by U.S. authorities that the amounts used were small and because the insecticide was believed to lose some of its toxic effects with time, it was considered the lettuce "would not constitute any hazard to health," a health protection branch spokesman said. Further contaminated shipments would be refused entry. The federal government was keeping in close touch with U.S. officials on the matter. WEDNESDAY NIGHT at the Legion "CHEM0" For MEMBERS and INVITED GUESTS ONLY! ges, and another 20 million In Uie Second World War. The volume of violence has diminished, but the Soviet public still seems to have a macabre interest in the vivid media reports on condemned criminals. Such reports often appear as true-life vignettes, detailing the culprit's "vile atrocities" and culminating with the court's inevitable verdict. FIGURES KEPT SECRET While the government discloses reports of individual crimes, over-all statistics on use of the death penalty are a state secret. In Stalin's day, Western experts could estimate how many Russians had been executed by studying census figures. But with the execution rate down from millions to tens, observers today must judge from newspaper reports reaching the Soviet capital. The published total, therefore, can be only a minimum. There are 11 provisions for the death penalty in the criminal code, including murder, hijacking and attempting to flee across Soviet frontiers. Thirteen other articles providing for capital punishment apply to the armed forces, covering such offences as surrender and refusal to serve in wartime. Most executions nowadays involve "economic crimes" of big-time operators who steal state property or embezzle government funds. Reports of executions dropped drastically after Nikita Khrushchev was deposed in 1964. 'But in September, 1970, the Kremlin revived the national ministry of justice. Since then the annual execution rate has doubled. Justice Minister Vladimir Te-rebilov admitted to a Western reporter two months ago that he was "personally against the death penalty," but indicated the Kremlin had no intention of ending capital punishment in the near future. DANGEROUS POSITION JERUSALEM (AP) - Foreign Minister Abba Eban of Israel has disavowed any intention of running for premier at the end of Golda Meir's term. "You are asking me to walk barefoot through a minefield," he told a questioner, "You do not know me very well."

New TV station plan announced VANCOUVER (CP) - The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation intends to apply for a license to operate a television station in Calgary, Laurent Picard, CBC president, said Tuesday. But Mr. Picard could not say when the application would be made. "Nothing has finally been decided," he said in a telephone interview from Calgary. "Studies have to be made." The Calgary project is not in the CBC's 1973-74 budget, he said. If desired, the funds could be sought. The possibility of the CBC establishing in Calgary arose last October during CRTC cable television hearings in Edmonton. CFAC, the CBC affiliate in Calgary, asked for time to study the possibility. If the CBC establishes in Calgary, CFAC would apply to disaffiliate and become independent. Tax fraud show on air OTTAWA (CP) - Years ago, the federal revenue department tried to take the sting out of income taxes by a series of witty advertisements. This year, it hired radio-TV personality Fred Davis to convince taxpayers the new forms aren't as complicated as they look. And now, In collaboration with the National Film Board, it is warning people what can go wrong with their lives if they try tax evasion. The Sloane Affair, to be seen on the* CBC-TV network Wednesday night, is a detective and courtroom drama about a fictional real estate developer who played tax evasion in a big way. A $4,000-a-year typist who in two years becomes a $14,000-a-year executive assistant is just part of the story. She's pretty, too, and obviously well paid to be pretty smart. The film board says the script is based on actual tax cases and the methods used by the revenue department to catch those who evade tax liabilities. . It was directed, produced, researched and partly written by Doug Jackson, 35, who will Betty Kennedy passes up show TORONTO (CP) - Television personality Betty Kennedy, scheduled to have been a co-hostess on CFTO's Saturday Night Show last week with IRA leader Sean Keane, said she declined "because the gentleman, I believe, was collecting funds" for political groups she considers "murderers." "There is a difference between discussing ideas and personalities you don't believe in and something like that," said Miss Kennedy, who had been injured by flying glass last year in a Belfast explosion.

He began writing professionally at the age of 19, and has produced or directed more than 40 films, many of them award-winners. The Sloane Affair stars Michael Kane as the man who built a real estate empire only to have it tumble when the revenue department seizes the company's books, and the pretty smart one-played by Sabina Maydelle-is called to the witness stand in court. The story is an absorbing one concerning corporate rip-offs that perhaps the NDP has not yet heard of, and without a moralizing line until the last scene. Staff cuts in prospect SASATOON (CP) - The Uni-v e r s i t y of Saskatchewan, caught in a cost - price squeeze, will have to reduce its staff complement for the 1973-74 term, university vice - president Dr. L. I. Barber said today. Although he did not have figures available for staff reductions, Dr. Barber said those quoted in the university newspaper were reasonably accurate. The Sheaf, the S a s k atoon campus newspaper, has said 17.5 full - time academic positions, 22.5 other full - time and 43.5 part - time jobs on the Saskatoon campus will have to be eliminated to stay within budget guidelines. In Regina, 25 full - time academic, 9.5 other-full time- and 39-part-time jobs will be done away with. With enrolment patterns on a downward trend and the university being a labor intensive operation, the only major area for budget reductions is staff, Dr. Barber said. More than 80 per cent of the university's operating budget is paid out in wages. TV HIGHLIGHTS WEDNESDAY MOVIE DRAMA: "Homecoming", 6 pm, Ch. 7.
